My newest find is this antique sewing basket made in Germany. It will be in my studio along with antique pin cushions that I like to collect. This beautiful basket has beautiful glass beads on top
and has been lovingly used...a lot!
I love the rounded corners.
The inside is very tattered, but one can still see the beautiful silk lining. I wonder who used this? Did she live in Germany or was this bought in the States??
The stamp mark on the bottom
reads Germany
This weekend I moved my potter from high in the kitchen, to a old cabinet I had in the dinning room. This is Frankoma Pottery and what makes it special to me is most of the pieces I have collected have been made with Ada clay, which is indigenous to where my people come from. My biological Mother lived in Oklahoma all of her life and Ada was her home most of her years. Two of my sisters live there still.

Thought for today since I don't have any pictures just yet. Tomrrow I will.

May those who love us love us, and those that don't love us, May God
turn their hearts; and if he doesn't turn their hearts, may he turn
their ankles so we'll know them by their limping.

Lace I bought in France and 2 of my beautiful antique card. I went crazy buying these old cards.
Keeper of my lace and trims...well not all of them!!!
Lovely communion arm band from France.
OHHHHH, how I love this piece of lace!! I bought this in Avignon France, when we five were antiquing with Corey and Yann. It took a while to decide where to hang it...but the hallway was just perfect. I can see it from my studio door.
Finally I have something accomplished after coming home from France.
I wanted to make a skirt ( to hide stuff) around my work table with
gunny sack material trimmed in old sheets from France that I purchased.
I love it, and the stenciling came out just the way I wanted.
Now, I have to get busy and create.
